It is 100% possible to transition from college, unemployment, an unfulfilling job, personal/professional roadblocks, or situations of uncertainty and burnout, to an ideal career or new business that aligns with your unique unlimited potential.
Note: My strengths do not lend themselves to working with individuals with learning disabilities. It is something I aspire but am not yet equipped.
A little about me - I am a University of Illinois graduate, a CPA, and an MBA from the University of Chicago. I have been a coach for 14 years and prior to that a corporate finance leader for + 20 years, overseeing the HR, IT, and finance functions in both Fortune 100 companies and private equity firms.
I made a career change from finance to coaching after doing my own Career Exploration work and my learnings from that journey helped me develop my 1:1 Entrepreneurial Coaching for Startups Series and Career Exploration – Connecting To Your Inner GPS Series.
Sometimes you just need someone to ask the right questions and the picture will then unfold. I provide executive coaching to startup founders and career coaching, resume writing, and interview prep to high potential individuals seeking to advance their careers in a new direction. I started this business specifically to help shorten the learning curve of those with a path similar to my own.
I have helped hundreds of professionals design the next chapter in their careers and transition into roles that capitalize on their strengths, skills, and interests.
My coaching style has been called a blend of coaching, therapy, and tough love! I want to see you be brave! And reach whatever goals you set for yourself professionally. If you are ready to really dig deep and learn a lot about yourself, I would love to work with you!
NOTE: 100% of my coaching is done by phone and email. And there is no charge for emails, etc. Thanks!

A resume is your primary marketing asset & optimally will express your work history, career accomplishments, unique skill set, & aspirations. Together we explore each of these aspects, articulate your incredible value & create a professional, tailored resume that will grab a hiring manager’s attention. Imagine securing a position where the work you do is inspired by the gifts & abilities you were born with and those carefully cultivated over your career!

Message me today to schedule a FREE 30-minute consultation! I would love to hear about your journey & objectives, and help you realize your goals ASAP!
If your current working situation feels like too much work and not enough payoff it’s time to challenge the status quo and your life-scripts that have kept you stuck in your current position. Together we will define your unique combination of gifts and skills to expose your inner genius and embrace a career reinvention that completely aligns with your authentic self, so you can Thrive, not just Survive!
I offer a personalized 3 session Career Exploration coaching series that explores what you could be doing based on your skill set, your passions, the way you are built (i.e. risk-averse vs daredevil, or extrovert vs introvert), the reward systems that work best for you, and your personal definitions of success (professional, financial, work/life balance, etc).
Send me a message and I will send you a link to schedule a free 30-minutes consultation to learn more.
Each of the sessions is approximately 60-70 minutes each, it is a self-paced series (you let me know when you are ready for the next session) .

One resource I always yearned for contemplating a career change and starting down the path of entrepreneurship was someone I could be honest with and with whom I could talk about anything - not someone who was an investor, a friend, or an employee, but an intelligent, experienced and empathetic individual who would listen and provide me tactical and personal advice, guide me in areas that were unfamiliar to me and help me to optimize myself and fulfill my potential. I would love to fill that role for you!
